Imagine taking an extended cruise through the exotic blue waters of the Aegean Sea all the way to the Ionian Sea. What would such a trip look like? For starters, you would see the west coast of Turkey and Greece's myriad easternmost islands. Then you would glide through the Corinth Canal, squeezing past the Peloponnese Peninsula, and on to Greece's west coast. Once you've made it to the Ionian Sea, you would have even more beautiful Greek islands to discover.
If you begin in the Aegean, then you must visit Mykonos. This Greek isle is known for its festive atmosphere; be prepared for the revelry to float out to your private yacht. It's as if the narrow, confining streets on the island cause energy to be pent up until people get a chance to let it all out on an open dance floor.
Rely on small hotels and tavernas for authentic Greek food. Drink fantastic local wines. Check out the nude beaches and drag shows, if you dare. Then go to one of Mykonos' 400 churches or chapels to erase the hedonism and focus on pure thoughts of the pristine shores, heavenly bougainvilleas, and immaculate white homes on this fun, splashy island.
